Wow, such a detailed response… thanks for taking the time to do that! I think the long tension rods were one of the things that led me away from the set. I’m notoriously rough on my gear and I messed up the rods on an old Clubdate set I owned a long time ago. That has stuck with me I guess.

I ripped (literally) those dividers out of my hardware bag. I have the same stuff (non-UL 6000, though) in mine and it’s much easier for me without the dividers. The whole Daru package seems like a really great deal for a working drummer. Great rig and looking forward to seeing some more gig pics of yours featuring them. 👊🏻👍🏻

Thanks man! I've got round two of our Halloween blowout weekend tonight but this is a muddy backyard bonfire haunted barn redneck fest in the middle of the woods where a buddy of mine said I could use his kit that I've shared in the past. I'll have gig pics tonight but I'm 50/50 on if I'll use my Daru Jones kit or his since it's already there.
 
Stunning picture and your kit matches the room!
Thanks a lot ;-) i'm glad they changed the padding color of the seats, a few years ago they were some kind of "hospital" pale green. The theater had a colder feel back then. So the red was a welcome surprise today.... Anyway, we're very fortunate to play these sort of places.

Another job with what I’m now gonna refer to as the Cadillac rig, as an ode to @roncadillac. This is a fairly regular thing we do over in Morro Bay on the central CA coast. It’s a couple hours away from Bakersfield but light years away in climate and overall cool factor.

This room hangs out about 20 feet over the water on the bay. Sun was setting as the picture shows. Great evening. Only downside is the silly old TV right on the small ass stage that we have to negotiate every time we play there. Oh well, great location, great venue and great crowd. I can put up with that stupid TV for three greats. 🤪

Played a nearby country club's fall family camp-out last night. They kindly paid us and provided dinner and drinks! Home by 10:00!

Food, cash, bar tab, and a reasonable bed time... Doesn't get much better then that!

You've mentioned this before but I figured I would inquire instead of thumb through a bunch of pages, that is a 10x20 correct? Was that a custom job? I noticed they offer a stock 12x20 in the performance line.

Yessir, 10x20 is correct. Custom job that was actually a mistake either on DW’s part or my dealer’s part. I originally ordered it as a 10x22 but it came as a 10x20. The 20” diameter ended up working out better so I’ll chalk it up to a happy mistake or good juju.

Final festival gig of the year with my all-female new-grass band. Chose the 6.5" Legacy Mahogany snare for this gig and it was perfect. I custom ordered it with flat imperial lugs. It's a pretty drum. Also brought out my Yamaha direct drive pedal, which I'm loving again.

Sounds like we may be chosen to play a showcase at the big state Festival Association's annual shindig in Charlotte. Should be interesting.

That's a classic, do-all, play anything rig you got there. Very nice!

Awesome, I thought that was the case. I'm thinking about taking the 16x22 pearl roadshow bass drum and 16x16 pearl roadshow floor tom I got cheap on Craigslist and cutting them down to something like 10" depth and keeping them single head. I've had a few rigs like this and dug them. Not to say say they would replace my PDP DJ kit but I've got them and the band is about to take a little break for a few weeks so I've got time for a project. These are typically used just as a kit to leave at the practice spot so I don't have to haul a full load every week so I'm not super worried about them. I would have the edges recut but the shipping alone would exceed the cost to buy them in the first place.

I have the same bag and was wondering about taking out the dividers. My ultra light high hat stand didn't last very long at all before it stripped out the tension bolt I retheaded it in a different hole and sold it. My cymbal stands and snares stand still get used.

Retirement gig! Got to break out my 24" Agop Sig and it is just beautiful. Used some Birch Starclassics my buddy was kind enough to let me borrow!

Another day, another duo gig at a horse ranch in Bakersfield with the Cadillac rig. We were cocktail hour entertainment while an Eagles tribute band was the main act. Pretty place for an event. DWs and Paiste 602s slayed as always. For once (probably the first time) in my life, I feel content with my gear. Only took 43 years of drumming. 🤪😵‍💫🙄
